Conor McGregor defeated Donald Cerrone in just 40 seconds at UFC 246 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
McGregor yelled from the center of the Octagon after the first-round knockout victory.
Masvidal would make sense as McGregor's next opponent for a number of reasons, but perhaps the most important is that the man known as The Notorious is looking to stay in the welterweight division.
The comment also stands out because rival Khabib Nurmagomedov—who defeated McGregor at UFC 229—fights at lightweight.
McGregor has become the first fighter to record knockout victories at featherweight, lightweight and welterweight, and the Dublin native's record stands at 22-4.
